Dime Store Fashion

     One of the most fascinating things about collecting vintage sunglasses is the level of quality in manufacturing. Dimestores such as Woolworth and five and dime stores would have ready made sunglasses that were sold for reasonable prices. While they were mass produced the sunglasses that were made back in the 1930-1950 were of exceptional quality and manufacturing . Some Of the materials that were used in the early 1900 was Bakelite the first plastic made of synthetic components. Other materials were zylonite or as Opticians say ZYL.  

     These Dimestore glasses of the past surpass some modern day designer brands!  We will be featuring a section on or new websites atticeyewear.com we will call dimestore! We hope you will stop by and visit us soon!

Godspeed Prince

Prince Rodgers Nelson......
The death of this consummate Artist was a jolt of reality. Prince's Minneapolis sound is to me the best of the1980's.

Prince paved the way for ARTIST to embrace their creativity and push the boundaries of music. He pioneered incorporating performance art thru the new medium of entertainment know as MTV! 
 
His sudden death brings light of how we must live life to the fullest. Though his passing is sad he left an indelible mark on Music that will live on forever!
Godspeed

Here Come's The Dawn Again....atticeyewear.com to the rescue!

Finding unique vintage items that meet our standards becomes more and more difficult. That is why when friend and Reggae Artist Johnny Dread lost his circa 1960 John Lennon eyeglasses he was so upset. We explained how we buy only one of each item so it is unique to the owner their iconic look! With much research however we were able to locate another pair for him. Needless to say Johnny was thrilled and relieved!
